Perfect Mirror | Venice, Italy

Speed Boat at night in the Venetian Ghetto in Venice, Italy.

Those who take only one day to visit Venice will regret it in the evening. Not even just because the city is worth it to spend more time in it. That’s for sure. But no, you will walk all day long. Obviously you can’t just hop on a tram or bus; instead you rely entirely on your legs and feet. Oh, and I bet you will get lost!

Usually I’m quite good in orienting in a new place, but in Venice it was almost impossible. Impossible to see the sun in the small streets and therefore no idea in which direction you’re going. Since then I always carry a compass in my backpack.

So it came that in the evening I just wanted to go to the hotel and sleep. My feet were hurting badly. But no, there is only one day. So when Daria went to sleep already, I went out again to the smaller alleys of Venice to get a few shots at night. Without a tripod at this time I only could put my camera on stairs or on the floor. But I think it was worth the pain.

Get it On Your Wall

Nico Trinkhaus presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
